August Blog Hop "Masculine"
Hello Everyone! Our Blog Hop this month is Masculine - using the current catalogs. I had so much fun creating this card! Without further ado, here is the card and the step by step instructions. I hope you enjoy and will give it a try.
Lets gather our supplies:
Stamp sets: Natures Beauty and Happiest of Birthdays
Stamp Pads: Basic Gray and Momento Black
DSP: Beauty of the Earth
Dies: Tailored Tags and Birthday Chick Dies for the diecut sentiment
Card Stock: Basic White Thick for the base 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
Old Olive piece for tag #1, Basic White piece for tag #2 Basic white piece for Sentiment (die cut)
Blends: Crumb Cake light and dark and old olive light and dark
Lets get started:
I cut the DSP to 5 1/4 by 4 and layered onto the front of the card
2. I die cut the two different tags using the largest one of each. One using Old Olive and one using Basic White. I also cut the reinforcements out of each color and interchanged them onto the tags.
3. Next I stamped the image on the white tag and colored using the blends. I used Basic Gray for the stamping. I cut a piece of DSP to fit inside the Old Olive Tag - 1 1/2 by 3
Adhere the tags as shown in the photo
4. Next I cut a piece of Basic White measuring 5 by 4 1/4 for the inside layer of the card. I used a small piece of DSP on this layer for continuity and then stamped the small trees from the same stamp set.I used the blends again for the coloring..
5. Stamp the sentiment on the inside layer.
Adhere this image to the inside of the card.
